Located in uptown Harlem within walking distance of Harlem’s historic “Strivers’ Row,” co-owners Chef Marla Rose and owner Paul Morejon has created a time capsule while capturing the soul of Harlem. From the moment you step into PEQUE Vinos & Tapas, you’re instantly transported to vintage Barcelona and Paris, circa the 1930s and 40s. With classic literature displayed in the window and antiques like a record player and a rotary phone by the entrance, this art deco inspired gem transports you out of the city life for a moment.

Spanish for “Lil Plates and Wine,” the restaurant holds true to its meaning with delicious small plates to accompany its famous Sangria and extensive list of red wines. The menu caters to dinner, tapas, a great happy hour, and weekend brunch—of course! The ambiance is intimate and cozy, making it a perfect date night or place to unwind after work. Every Wednesday, there is live music and events featuring local entertainers and artists. The cheese boards are a must-try, especially the popular manchego cheese board with roasted grapes and almonds. Favorite tapas on the menu include Setas Salteadas, savory mushrooms in a broth of fresh butter and shallots, and the Albóndigas tender meatballs in a tomato sauce with manchego cheese. Both are delicious and are perfect to share with a date or friend! ~Nyasia Elie
